Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalism, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
I received the letter below today from Senator Rand Paul, a Libertarian.
I’ll say from the onset, I’m not for abortion, never have been but I’m always pro choice and always have been as well.
Perhaps it’s my medical background that allows me to recall the number of females who died of sepsis and subsequent “Septic Shock,” from botched coat hanger abortions.
I do not believe it’s the government’s place to have any say so in a woman’s body, it should be up to her, her husband or boyfriend and physician to make the proper decision, not 9 judges on the Supreme Court.
Some of you may want to sign the petition be my guest.
I will say this to all women, so get out your guns and knives, I suspect many of you have voted at one time in your life to make sure abortion is kept legal and may well have not voted had this not been your singular concern.
Think about it, be honest, remember when you were young? Not just women, who knew what or whom they were voting for, it may even be worse today.
If a woman seeks an abortion there will be no stopping her, the illegal trade will be be back in action or women will leave the country, a needless expense.
Let’s not forget if the Supreme Court were to be shaped with an even more liberal bias, do you want them telling you sorry but it’s time for you do die?
While we are on the topic: Dear Rand, I’m not in favor of your stance on National Security.
I’m with Reagan, “Peace through Strength.”
For over 40 years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life.
They have invented laws that condemned to painful deaths without trial more than 56 million babies for the crime of being “inconvenient.”
In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.
In the past, many in the pro-life movement have felt limited to protecting a life here and there — passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases.
But some pro-lifers always seem to tiptoe around the Supreme Court, hoping they won’t be offended.
Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.
Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it.
That is why it’s so urgent you sign the petition to your Senators and Congressman that I will link to in a moment.
You see, in the coming year it is vital every Member of Congress be put on record.
And your petition today will help do just that.
Signing the Life at Conception Act petition will help break through the opposition clinging to abortion-on-demand and get a vote on this life-saving bill to overturn Roe v. Wade.
A Life at Conception Act declares unborn children “persons” as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection.
This is the one thing the Supreme Court admitted in Roe v. Wade that would cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.”
When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution.
Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster.
But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a constitutional right.
Instead the Supreme Court said:
“We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins . . . the judiciary at this point in the development of man’s knowledge is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”
Then the High Court made a key admission:
“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e., "Roe" who sought an abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”
The fact is, the 14th Amendment couldn’t be clearer:
“. . . nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law.”
Furthermore, the 14th Amendment says:
“Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”
That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.
But this simple, logical and obviously right legislation will not become law without a fight.
And that’s where your help is critical.
